Dabhach (gen. daibhche), a vessel, vat, press or well, is also used in place-names to refer to some depression or recess; cf. Letterdyfe, Leitir Daibhche, a townland in Connemara where the hole in question may be a cave, and Culdaff, Cúil Dabhcha, Co. Donegal, where it seems to refer to a stone with holes bored in it.   Coomnadiha is the third highest mountain in the Caha Mountains area and the 207th highest in Ireland.

Updated Summary:
Glantrasna's Highpoint
Short Summary created by Onzy,  21 Jul 2015
Coomnadiha is the highest point of the hills surrounding the Glantrasna valley.

From the west, on the R571, there is a gated farm track at V80519 60522 A with room to park one car without blocking the entrance. From here the track leads almost to the summit of Knockreagh and from there over mixed ground to Coomhadiha. An out-and-back from here should take around three hours. Coomhadiha could also be approached from parking deep within Glantrasna itself, at V82637 59648 B, although this involves some steep overgrown ground, particularly at the lower reaches.

A more complete route is to take in the summit as part of a circuit of the entire valley. Parking at either point allows access to a round taking in Knockreagh, Coomnadiha, Caha (not MV-listed), Droppa and Cummenbaun. In either case an amount of road-walking will be necessary. The entire circuit should take around 6 hours. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/203/comment/4963/

Around 500m NW of the summit this view opens out towards Cummeenadillure Lough, at the head of Glaninchiquin. The summit is on the skyline to the right, while distant Knocknagorraveela is the skyline on the left. The rising ground to the left is marked as Cummeenanimma on the map, however some guidebooks state that this should be known as Eskana.

What a wild combination of lake, distant mountain and contorted rock. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/203/comment/2243/

From Coomnadiha there's a great view north over the Kenmare River. The white covered summits are mostly the eastern Macgillycuddy's Reeks at 24k away. The darker double humped summits immediately below them Bascadh and Boughil (just right of centre in the pic). You can just see the tail end of the Dunkerron range, Mothaillín, to their right. (Oh, ok, it was a bit more distinct on the original full size pic.) To the right is the notch of the Gap of Dunloe.

Gotta hand it to the snow shower and attendant clouds for drama in this pic. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/203/comment/2559/
